"Inspiring students to explore, create, contribute and achieve" is the mission statement that drives our our academic programs and our student life experiences at Pulaski Academy. As the only PK-12, independent, non-sectarian, college-prep school in Arkansas, Pulaski Academy offers area families a uniquely diverse and globally oriented "learning community." With an academically engaging, values-based curriculum; a broad range of exploratory student clubs and organizations; a flourishing arts program; and a highly competitve athletic program, every student in pre-school through the 12th grade is nurtured and challenged daily. Our dedicated and talented faculty members guide students as they grow into young adults of integrity with respect for themselves and for others. Keeping an eye on our vision of being "the leader in innovative education", our faculty works closely in vertical teams to ensure that sequential, age-appropriate learning occurs in each classroom and at every grade level. As a college preparatory school, all students are all held to high academic standards and are taught to serve as their own educational avocate as they move through our programs. For students who have learning differences, we provide academic assistance through our Learning Labs (PK-12) to meet the established standards of achievement. Witha wide range of electives, accelerated/honors-level courses, and over 20 Advanced Placement offerings, our Upper School students can elect to tailor their program to their future aspirations and current passions. PA also offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities, sports, and service learning experiences for students to cultivate personal interests/talents and hone leadership abilities. For K-8 students we also offer robust "Extended Day" and "Summer at the Academy" programs that provide parents with fun, educational experiences for their children beyond the regular school day. By providing challenging academics, cultural enrichment, wholesome athletic competition, and a nurturing environment, Pulaski Academy is shaping the future...one student at a time. Financial assistance is available to qualified students.
